For fans of Say Anything that had been anticipating seeing the band perform at this year’s Riot Fest in Chicago got sad news earlier today when it was announced that the band had dropped off the line-up. The reason being given at the time was that due to medical concerns.
Before anyone starts to think that it might have to do with frontman, Max Bemis, the medical concern is actually for an unnamed member of the band (anyone want to take any guesses, no sarcasm this time, guys).
Bemis released the following message to fans about missing the show:
Hey y’all, with one of our members dealing with some pressing and unavoidable medical issues, we regretfully have to pull out of Riot Fest. Suffice to say we are bummed. Our sincere apologies to anyone hoping to see us. Meanwhile, you guys enjoy the great line up at Riot this year and we promise to make it up when we tour our new record in 2014.
Just yesterday, Riot Fest had posted up the complete set times for the weekend-long show. Wonder who’s going to be filling the band’s slot due to the absence. Any guesses (again, no sarcasm)?
